Salams dear folks!  A quick query to help my twitter using neice Smiley  Twitter allows only 140 character per tweet.  Often long URLs take up so many characters that one can hardly write anything on the tweet.  I know there's a way to shorten these lenghty irritating links.  But how?  Any ideas, anyone?

Hmmm, true.  I've read that twitter auto shortens long links.  But that's never happened with me.  My long links in twitter stay long unless I shorten them myself.  And here's how I shorten them.  Go to Tiny url webpage:

http://tinyurl.com/

Enter the long (original) url and then click the "Make tiny url" button.  You'll now get the abbreviated url.  Copy & paste alongside your tweet in twitter.

There are other places as well which do this work of shortening urls.  But I use this one.
